I want to jump into your buttons and go swimming in them... like Uncle Scrooge used to do on DuckTales with his money.  Wink

Mub, that is gorgeous and you made a beautiful bride  Kiss
Thank you so much!  I was really happy with how things turned out =)

the dress is FAB, and the colors are wonderful...you look great

Thanks!  I wanted something besides the traditional white (since I'm already pasty, I didn't want to look dead, and we all know how flattering white is on some bigger bodies), and we found the skirt fabric at walmart on their $1 a yard table *L*  We did go to town on the lace, but it was so worth it in the end!

I got to the post office about 5 minutes after they closed today, so I will be sending tomorrow!  I swear there is no logic to their opening hours!!

I used a Khaliah Ali pattern for my wedding dress, and it worked out beautifully!  It wasn't specifically a "wedding dress" pattern, but I thought it worked =)

Simplicity 4478

We used the size that fit my shoulders, but altered it on the hips because I have the nice*coughihateitcough* triangle shaped body that makes nothing fit correctly...

I've also had good success with the "Today's Fit" line by Sandra Betzina that Vogue sells.  They are very helpful in how to alter the pattern to fit YOU.

It looks great, and I really like the pattern, thanks for the link!  This would be perfect for a biscornu too!

Any chance that you'd put a pattern together and *cough*sell*cough* it to me?  I have an aunt that ran into a moose, so it's a family joke to torment her with moose-related things *L*

Pattern sizes are so annoying.  I always go by the measurements on the envelope and not the size... and sometimes even then it's a little iffy Wink  They turned out really cute!  If they're too long, you could just hem them up... or add some elastic about an inch up from the bottom so they have a cute little ruffle effect. 
8  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Re: mini iron... worth it? on: September 20, 2007 04:38:51 AM
Hands down, the little Rowenta travel iron is the best "small" iron I've used.  It's more expensive than the ones you linked to, but it's small, the handle folds down for storage, it's -really- lightweight, and it gets HOT enough to actually do something!  It's also a steam iron, which is faaaabulous.  I gave one to my mom as a gift and wished I'd kept it for myself Wink  I honestly wouldn't bother spending the money on another iron.  This one is -well- worth the price. 

Here's a link to it on amazon:  http://www.amazon.com/Rowenta-DA-35-Latitude-Compact-Voltage/dp/B00005KJX2
9  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Re: Let's see your sewing machine!! on: September 20, 2007 04:03:43 AM
I was crazy excited when I saw it!  I'd been looking for a new machine since I left my old Husqvarna in the US when I moved... so my husband asked the woman how much she wanted, and she said "30 euro."  The machine is pristine, and I should've tried to haggle her down a little because when I said "SOLD!" she looked surprised I hadn't tried to offer her less *L*

I have a fairly simple Janome, but I'll cheat a bit and post a cell phone picture of a gorgeous vintage mint-green Husqvarna Rotary I saw at a flea market recently. Fortunately (or un-) I didn't have any money. But isn't it pretty?
Edited because an actual picture is good.

Lamantin!  I have that sewing machine =D The inside of my case is even the same!

How much was it at the flea market?  I picked mine up for 30 or 35 euro (I can't remember).  I looooove it.
